In mild oceanic climates (e.g. Ireland) dew points around 30 (-1 C) can result in dangerous icy driving conditions. In warmer drier climates (e.g. Australia) a dew point of -1 C and some wind in January can lead to explosive wildfires. I think dew point isn’t discussed in daily weather forecasts because most people don’t know what it means.
